How many years has the Post Office branch been open at the Old Horns shops, maybe 55 ?
Well it is to close, my Mum has told me. I am surprised as I went in two weeks to give a registered letter and no obvious signs that it was to be. Apparently the functions will move into the newsagents. This is sadly inevitable as the Modern Tech age drives on there is less and less demand for it.
I remember being 19 and having to collect Dole money from there in 1991 and having to queue for 40 minutes for it with pensioners etc. Not any more as more and more benefits, pensions etc become direct payments.
I suppose we can be grateful some functions will be kept there as I sometimes use registered posts or send parcels for eBay etc. There is no point ranting and raving about this which is inevitable to modern technology. Lets be honest how many people who access to the web visit a PO for car tax etc now ?
